Surviving an Environment of IT Change

Surviving an Environment of IT Change

 
“The Federal government today is in the midst of a revolution. The revolution is challenging the norms of government by introducing new ways of serving the people. New models for creating services and delivering information; new policies and procedures that are redefining federal acquisition and what it means to be a federal system integrator. This revolution also lacks the physical and tangible artifacts of the past. Its ephemeral nature, global expanse and economic impact all combine in a tidal wave of change. This revolution is called cloud computing.”

Sponsored by ViON Corporation, my latest whitepaper looks at the challenges government organizations face as they transition to the cloud computing world.

“What many saw as merely political theater, Vivek Kundra and Steven Van Roekel leveraged this amazing confluence of events as the impetus for reinventing government information technology. Through the use of Techstat, FedRAMP, Cloud First and Share First the Federal Government’s first and second CIOs saw cloud computing as the business revolution that it truly represents. They were also in the position to drive this revolution through the US Federal Government. Luckily, pioneers like Amazon Web Service (IaaS), Salesforce.com (SaaS) and Google (PaaS), through active and aggressive metering and monitoring of commodity hardware platforms (two more essential characteristics) had already proven the business model. The combination of fast access to better IT at lower price points was just too much to ignore.”

Download the whitepaper now and learn about the critical component of cloud that every agency needs to exploit in order to be successful in this important transition. The paper also addresses the multiple and parallel transitions initiated by cloud computing related policy changes.

“Like it or not, cloud computing also eliminated the barrier that use to exist between an organization’s IT platform and the rest of the world. This simultaneously exposed the inefficiencies and failures of the country’s information and data management policies.”
